The Showcase of Depravity

This is the long hard truth. It goes extra deep.

"Comedy's a dead art form. Now tragedy, that's funny." The Showcase of Depravity showcases... depravity. Wisdom and humor from the perspective of a few disgruntled (& sexy) video store professionals.

Boy, it's a really nice day out. It must suck to be inside all day hearing people tell you how beautiful the weather is

Today is April 19th...
Just for the record: Spring began in March.
So when do you think people are going to stop feeling the need to say "beautiful weather we're having, right?", or "we got us some nice weather today!" or "sure is nice out, wouldn't ya say?" to make conversation? How many days, or weeks into the Spring/Summer is it going to take for people to finally understand that we've enterered into the season of year where we have warm weather most of the time, making it unnecessary to constantly refer to it for the sake of small talk. But the answer, i suppose, is in the question... the need to refer it so they can have small talk to begin with.

Mannnn, it such a nice day! yea, I KNOW! I got to enjoy it for 5 joyful minutes on my way to work, where I spend the rest of the day IN DOORS serving you people. So thank you very much for reminding me of yet another reason why being at work all day isnt as good as NOT being at work all day.

It also makes me wonder why so many people are coming in to rent movies on days with such gorgeous weather... go! live life! explorer nature and be one with the earth. get off your couch. at least i get paid to be in doors watching movies, what's your excuse?

-Jordan, i'm grumpy and procrastinating.

[P.S. by some strange coincidence, right after writing this post about the bizarre behavior that people have of constantly saying unnecessary things just to make converstion, i stumble up this quote from Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy (that i saw in Larissa's myspace profile...)(Ford Prefect is a character in the book):

One of the things Ford Prefect had always found hardest to understand about humans was their habit of continually stating and repeating the very very obvious, as in "It's a nice day", or "You're very tall", or "Oh dear you seem to have fallen down a thirty-foot well, are you all right?" At first Ford had formed a theory to account for this strange behavior. If human beings don't keep exercising their lips, he thought, their mouths probably seize up. After a few months' consideration and observation he abandoned this theory in favor of a new one. If they don't keep on exercising their lips, he thought, their brains start working. After a while he abandoned this one as well as being obstructively cynical and decided he quite liked human beings after all, but he always remained desperately worried about the terrible number of things they didn't know about.

there you have it. maybe i'll actually read this book now.]

    Hi Jordan, Sean here (hope you remember me - I'm a fellow Customer Service Sufferer). Boy, I really, really liked this blog! No shit! It's funny 'cause it's true. "The weather is absolutely gorgeous today." Wow, thanks, no, really, go ahead and slice open my wrist and squeeze some lemon into it! And you know what's even better? Holidays. When I worked for Starbucks (I know, I'm sorry too) we were open on Thanksgiving. "Gee, it's a shame you guys have to work today." Yeah, isn't it? Then what in the fuck are you doing here making it even worse for me? Or how about the customer who show up three minutes before closing? In my line of work (a deli) it always happens to be a 376 sandwich order. "I'm really sorry we showed up at the last minute. I hate it when people do that." DO YOU?!?! Me too! If you were sorry you never would have walked through the door, moron.
    Sorry Jordan, I went off. I probably should have saved it for my blog. Take care!
